Congress Milind Deora Bats
In view of the wave of attacks on minorities in Bangladesh in recent weeks, MP Milind Deora has called for an amendment to the controversial citizenship law to protect Hindus in Bangladesh. In a tweet, Milind Deora said: “Bangladesh’s escalating communal violence is extremely worrying. CAA must be amended to protect & rehabilitate Bangladeshi Hindus fleeing religious persecution. India must also reject & thwart any communal attempt to equate Indian Muslims with Bangladeshi Islamists.”
Meanwhile, the BJP said that Hindu religious freedom was violated in Bangladesh and advocated the importance of the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) "The impunity with which religious freedom of Hindus in Bangladesh is being trampled, reiterates the importance of the CAA, a humanitarian legislation.
Mamata Banerjee's opposition to the CAA and studied silence now should worry Hindus of West Bengal who too are facing marginalisation under the TMC," BJP spokesperson Amit Malviya had said. In West Bengal, all districts along the border with Bangladesh have been warned by the state government of violence and unrest in the neighboring country.
All police chiefs in these districts have been urged to remain vigilant after the attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh. These neighborhoods are considered highly sensitive, sources say, and the government of West Bengal is trying to keep the peace around Christmas.
Violence erupted in parts of Bangladesh after an alleged blasphemous incident at a lodge in Durga Puja, Cumilla, about 100 km from Dhaka, and paramilitary forces were deployed in many affected areas. However, there were sporadic clashes between police and fanatics as the media reported on the destruction of Hindu temples and bars in Durga Puja.
